Jewish uprisings in big cities have always drawn more attention and are better-known than revolts in smaller ghettos. However, the latter needed not less heroism, and oftentimes much more determination because of the complete lack of contact with any organizations that could have helped them or at least pass on the information about the fate of Jews. They are researchd by Dr Natalia Aleksiun, who on the basis of post-war accounts and diaries will present attempts of organizing collective resistance in ghettos and labour camps. Dr Natalia Aleksiun will speak about Jewish resistance in Eastern Galicia, among others in Lwów, Brody and Buczacz.
